coast through the weekend. eric fisher joins us now from ft. lauderdale with the latest. what are you watching, eric? >> i'm watching a lot of rain, tamron, moving into south florida. it is not the type of day that the beach resorts hope for. we are going to see this rain continuing through the afternoon into the evening as well. although winds not going to be a big part of this story. i've got a little personal weather station here. the water is off to my left. when i look at it, we're talking 5 to 15 miles an hour. that's certainly not an epic storm. this isn't going to go down in the history books. in terms of the wind, really not a big deal. it became a tropical storm by reaching wind speeds of 40 miles an hour. as it moves northward, we could see gusts. the 4 to 8 inches of rainfall in south florida, that can pose a problem, especially for the more urban areas. the water stacks up. we have a lot of paved roads. especially as we get into this evening commute, we could -- we always tell people turn around, don't drown. most of the flooding-related fatalities occur when people try t
with no because i'm not. if god told us to do it, then i guess he could tell us to do something different. >> this morning, general ray ordeearno also expressed his concern of american troops if this burning takes place. >> i think there will be some backlash and i think we have seen some already. >> kerry sanders is in florida. this church, if it tries to burn the koran, it would be violating an ordinance, right? >> yes. the city has an ordinance, not related to burning of korans, but just burning anything in your yard. they have a field here and the ordinance is rather specific. it allows, for instance, kids to go camping and have a little camp fire in their yard. but, it has to be twigs and branches. the city police department says that they have interpreted the ordinance that if they were to burn the books that the ink in the koran would be a hazardous material and, so, what they're planning to do is if they decide to come out here and burn the koran as they say they're going to do on the anniversary of 9 /11 the gainesville fire department will be on alert. if they try to spark it, t
called what else, but the blue school. good to have you with us. tell us about the school itself and the goals of it and why you wanted to be a part of this. >> yeah, well, there were six of us who started the blue school, and three of us were founders of blue man group here in new york, and then our partners, and what we wanted to do was start a school that filled in the gaps of what -- the parts of our education we thought were missing. >> right. >> we had public education, we had private education. so we wanted to focus on creativity, sewing creativity into subject matter, having social and emotional learning, being on an equal weight of any academic subject and inquiry-based learning, and we wanted to talk to the children, the teachers, and the parents as a triad and build the school as a community. >> let's talk about the kids, though, because you went after the youth, the youngest ones. >> that's right. >> talking about 4, 5, 6-year-olds. why did you think it was early to target so young? >> it's very important in our view to star with this kind of approach right from the b
, in effect, what is this part of our bureaucracy not telling us? i am untroubled by the kinds of cross-fire that i'm reading in this book. >> untroubled and not surprised? >> not surprised in the least. but, look, the thing that remains fascinating is how does bob woodward do this? i mean, he gets in there. he gave us the first book on this war "bush at war" and he got all of this material about the bush administration approaching the afghan war and there was very little disagreement in that. he also gave us the next book about the bush administration approach to the iraq war. >> right. >> you don't find this kind of disagreement in that as they were marching towards something they could not do in iraq. >> i want to read -- >> the plan didn't work. >> i want to read something from this book. it says the president was frustrated with his commanders asking for more troops. i can't let this be a war without end. i can't lose the whole democratic party. >> yeah. the way i read that is the congress has control of our war-making powers through the purse if they want to exercise it. if i lose
'donnell show." they may say give us something to believe in. >> that seems to be the disconnect here. you talk to democrats in washington privately they say a bunch of people sent us to washington to change the place, and maybe they don't see the change yet. they haven't seen these effects. so you see these examples all the time. but look at what the president is doing today. he's in madison. a little bit of a college town, so i've heard. >> that's the word on the street. >> joe biden is at penn state. they're having four or five surrogates all trying to do this. they are finally starting to engage african-americans. the third part of this coalition of surge voters the the youth. >> young people. >> now the question, i believe, posed in the first read as well, will the white house blame the base? if the midterms are a bust? >> no, i think each side has a built-in excuse. the base will say, you didn't give us anything to believe in. the white house will say, you guys are holding us to a ridiculous standard. and this bickering back and forth. the problem is, it's the economy. at the end of the d
negotiator for the fbi. this is brand-new video just coming in to us now, clint, from their coral gables in florida. give us your sense of the situation. our nbc station there in miami was reported it starred last night with a domestic dispute. >> not too surprising, contessa, a situation like this gets very confused. there were multiple reports today, as you suggest, a domestic dispute last night. there was also reports that there was a home invasion, a hostage taking that a bank teller was forced to wear an alleged explosive device on his body, and had entered the bank. there were also reports of multiple bank robbers so this is flying left and right, but, supposedly, the fbi, earlier this morning, indicated to their knowledge that one person had entered the bank wearing a bomb about 11:30 or a half an hour ago. we do know that a shirtless man had exited the bank, was in handcuffs and was in police custody and that the bomb squad was on the scene supposedly evaluating whether there was a device inside the bank, if that device was actually a bomb, and they are spriting separate the bad

. and schools in craven county actually had to close early. eric fisher joins us from ft. lauderdale, florida. wow. looks fun out there. >> oh, yeah. it's a barrel of laughs here in ft. lauderdale. the rain has been coming down. we are waterlogged. some towns have picked up three, four inches of rainfall since yesterday afternoon. as you can see, that rain continues to come down. the main threat with this storm is not the wind. it's not going to be a classic tropical storm. it's just a huge moisture machine. you have to think about this. the center is just south of cuba. the moisture all the way up from the caribbean into pennsylvania. that's where they're starting to see rainfall already. so pretty remarkable event. don't think of it as tropical storm nicole or what will become a nor'easter. just think of it as a heavy rain-maker. now, we are already seeing hydroplaning on the streets as the cars start their evening commute home. we're expecting a very slow ride. some schools have canceled their activities for the end of the day. call ahead to check on those. city officials went to work. mos

they'll come up with. otherwise, they may be used as political pawns. >> how concerned are you and other observers of the situation for josh fattal and shane bauer. the united states doesn't traditionally bargain with countries like this trying to use bargaining chips to get them released. >> they've made it clear they're not going to trade any prisoners or anything like that. the future looks a little ominous for them. it's been a long time in very, very hard conditions. when we were back in iran in may, they gave a press conference for the three of them. >> i remember that. >> and they looked tired. i mean, a year at that point in an irrain yan jail had taken a emotional and physical toll on them. they feel one third free that sara has been released, but it has to be tough being left behind there. >> ali arazi, thanks so much. >>> a rising tea party star falling behind in the polls. christine o'donnell is trailing chris coons. in the newest cnn/time opinion research poll. i'm joined now live by deputy clinical director mark murray. good morning again. >> good morning, alex. >

for failing a drug test. we'll go live to los angeles where kristen walker is standing by for us. a very early morning to you. why was lindsay released just hours after she was sentenced? >> reporter: really a stunning turn of events here, alex. you are absolutely right. essentially the superior court judge ruled that lindsay lohan was only facing misdemeanor charges. therefore, she was entitled to bail, which she set at $300,000. lindsay posted that and was home at 12:30 a.m. this morning. as you mentioned, alex, earlier in the day a judge ordered lindsay to jail for 30 days without bail. he was essentially holding her there until her next court date. she was in court initially because she had failed a drug test just weeks after she has been released from rehab. so that's why she was? jail yesterday. it was her third stint in jail all stemming back to a 2007 dui arrest. so she's really been struggling with this in and out of jail. and yesterday judge elton fox in the morning decided that he was going to put her in jail and teach her a lesson to be in jail without any bail. but again, the supe
